Nationwide Commercial. "Use Your Head".

Nationwide has begun a humorous campaign advocating safety:

I saw this one tonight for the first time and had to rewind. At least I thought it was funny, but I'm twisted like that.

2. Implication is that the other kid saw injury happen & didn't stop to help or call for help.


Still, it is effective. I had the sound off.

3. NO, it isn't. The implication is the other kid was too busy being harrassed.

 

The other kid was too busy being harassed by a little prick who probably has a MAGA sticker on his bike.

The other kid was too worried about the bullying going on to notice that ASSHOLE kid was about to get exactly what he deserves.

NO WHERE in the PSA was the other kid shown as seeing the threat and happily ignoring it and NOT warning ASSHOLE kid.

It makes me sick that people want to blame the victim for things.

7. Implication is the bully was so busy BULLYING that he didn't notice the impending hazard.

8. Sure. That doesn't disagree with what I noticed.


The camera, from the POV of the helmetted cyclist, notices the collision in the field of view and then continues on without stopping or looking back.

5. Not funny, but deserved.

I got that kind of abuse in the 70's for wearing a helmet, and yes my mom made me.

I feel sorry for the bully. If he's lucky he'll have some road rash and nasty egg on his head. Things just go downhill from there.

On the other hand, I did and do consider folks like that organ donors.
